After the defendant filed an answer to the complaint on November 10, 2005, no further action took place until April 30, 2008, when the court directed the plaintiffs to show cause by May 30, 2008 why the case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute.

An order consistent with this Memorandum Opinion is separately and contemporaneously issued this 30th day of September, 2008.
